The 2016 Rio Olympic Games are still in progress, as of this writing, but the Judo matches have come to an end. Kayla Harrison from the U.S.A. received a gold medal in the Women’s 78 kg weight category. She is the epitome of Judo. Kayla has a great work ethic and a drive that made her a top Judoka. The other medalist is Travis Stevens, who competed in the Men’s 81 kg category and earned a Silver medal.
Congratulations to all of the other athletes who represented the United States in Judo.
